In reaching toward the infinite, 
I am brought back to my own heart, 
to the life that lives within me as love, 
to the life that reaches toward people and plants and animals as
caring, 
to the life in us capable of cherishing the presence in the now of all
future generations,
to the life in you and me that intuits
and celebrates the presence in us
of a life and  love greater than our own.
